Tilda Fabric Fat Quarter Blog Hop: Fat Quarter Dress

I'm delighted to have been invited to take part in the Tilda Candy Bloom blog hop, organised by Stitch Craft Create. 

I was set the challenge of what to do with nine fat quarters... and this is what I came up with:

I love Tilda fabric, but I am used to the more subtle designs they have come up with in the past, so when this delightful bunch from the Candy Bloom collection exploded out of the envelope it put me in the mood for some fun!

Part beach cover-up, part everyday overdress, my design used all nine fat quarters, with minimal wastage.

  1. What a really imaginative and original design, love how it looks over a top and leggings.

  2. Wow! Great idea Sophie. I cover up on the beach these days, but your design looks good on you! Lovely use of these beautiful fabrics!
